Portuguese Podengo

The national breed of Portugal, there are six varieties of Podengo - small, medium and large, each of which has two coat types, smooth or wire-haired. It is generally though that the Podengo is a descendant of the Pharaoh Hound, which, once introduced to Portugal by Phoenician traders, soon established itself as a great rabbit hunter.

This ancient multi-sensory hound uses both sight and scent in pursuit of its quarry.

A courageous, lively little companion with an obedient character and an affectionate nature.
